    Calling all ebay Junkies-Quickload holder needed.

    All right, this is getting completely insane. As I said before, it has been a long while since I have picked up a camera. In fact I just decided to open up the bag, the last camera I used was in. This would be the 4x5 field camera I used up the lower Dolores river 2 years ago. Everything is where it is supposed to be....except the quickload holder. Ahhhhhh CRAP! This one I am sure is gone. Probably fell out of the bag or something.

    Now I can't even find one on ebay. Any of you EBAY junkies help me out by pointing me to one?

    Will fuji quickloads work in them?

    They do for me. I haven't shot a ton of them, but I have not had problems...

    You can use a polaroid holder. Kodak Readyload holder would also work, but I believe you would want the newer version with black pressure plate.

    I found this one this afternoon by complete accident - I was looking to purchase it but need to wait until I actually get a Tachihara first

    The newest Readyload holders works fine. It's been as good as the Quickload holder for me. I hve both, but usually carry the Kodak, and will until I use up the last of the Readyload sheets I have.

    Yes, pretty much any 4x5 polaroid sheet holder will work with quickloads, and they are a dime a dozen. If you want you can modify it slightly to make it lighter and easier to use, I have a little blog tutorial on that. I recommend sacrificing one quickload sheet to make sure the unclipping/reclipping mechanism works well.

    I have a couple of Polaroid holders that I don't use but I didn't think they were good for anything. I want to say there's a 500 and a 545 or maybe a 550 - one is black and the other sort of beige. If you can tell me which one would work for you, I can check tonight when I get home.

    The Polaroid holders don't have a pressure plate, so film flatness may be an issue. I believe I had this issue sometimes but never really tracked it down for sure. This was be before I got the Quickload and Readyload holders.
